We used to drive out to Parisienne Island to go ice fishing when I was a teen. It was my car so the family was cool with what I was doing. Our way of scientifically testing the ice was to be second car in the parade. There is an Island in Wisconsin that the school buses use the ice road because the ferry gets stuck in the ice.

Today I gave up the walker and only need a cane for balance when outside the RV. Inside I can use the counters to steady myself. My legs do tire easily and I'm still spending most of the day in bed. It gets easier every time I get up.

For the most part I can be self sufficient except for applying cream to my back. It seems that the anesthiologist didn't believe the NO SKIN ADHESIVES note written on my allergy bracelet. I have rash that covers most of my back where he applied some sort of skin glue to hold the epidural line in place.

My pre surgery bravado is starting to return. I know I still have a lot of hard w**k ahead getting my muscles back to normal, but the light at the end of the tunnel shines bright.

Hey Marty,

You need to wear an eye patch outside. There is a Mythbusters episode that tested the theory that pirates wore an eyepatch to keep one eye acclimated to the dark so they could see when they went below deck. It proved to be valid.

Yep, Sena loves me again and has even forgiven Arlene for taking me away. Of course it probably helps that Arlene brings food every time she comes out. Sena is very loyal.... to her stomach, that is.

Sounds like you are doing well.
That is great to hear.
Try not to push too hard and give yourself time to heal.

The DW has the same allergic reactions to adhesives as you.
After her open heart surgery, she had blisters on her wrists
from the tape for the IV. They totally ignored the warning
and were advised to use paper tape only. After a 6 page letter
to the Hospital Administrator, they always tell us it is identified now.

Best wishes.

Back to watching the snow and freezing rain come down.
Beautiful outside.
Glad I no longer have to get around in it.

Catch y'all whenever there's another chance.

Hey Ken,

Do you by chance have a copy of that letter in your computer? Maybe I can get some ideas for the letter I need to write. I can't even trust paper tape to be safe for me, so I bring my own that I have first tested for 5 days. There were 6 rolls of my tape that went to surgery with me, but Dr Who, that's his real name, chose to ignore all the warnings. BTW, I have found a silk tape that I can use if your DW is interested.

So happy to hear you are doing well, Barb. And good that Sena is no longer mad at you.
We are set for a decent thaw in the next week. I can't wait for spring, and time to hit the road. Staying in, waiting for winter to end is such a long process this year. We had other hopes for this year but it hasn't worked out. Maybe next year we can take midwinter trip to warmer climes.

Great news Barb! You go girl.

Any mutants in central or south Florida also enjoying the monsoon that we are experiencing? No drought this Spring for Florida. Inches and inches just today.

I'm was whining until our daughters text(ed?) us from central Indiana. Sub zero again this morning. High did make it to 32*.
